Lost Shin Megami Game Coming to 3DS
On Wednesday, Atlus announced plans to finally bring the long lost Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers game to North America in 2013.
Originally released in Japan for both the Sega Saturn and the PlayStation, Soul Hackers never made the jump to American shores. Now, more than 15 years after it debuted, 3DS owners will finally get the chance to play one of the rare games Shin Megami fans have been waiting for.
Soul Hackers is a first-person dungeon-crawling sci-fi RPG filled with, “cyberpunk futurism and gothic horror.” When it arrives next spring, Soul Hackers will have a full English localization, as well as new gameplay features including added dungeons and the ability to adjust difficulty settings on the fly. 30 brand-new demons will also be added to the mix, as well as a special appearance from Raidou Kuzunoha, the protagonist from the PlayStation 2 Devil Summoner titles.
